The proposal for the Jinju National Museum is nestled within a captivating urban park, known for its long and linear layout. This location holds historical significance as it was once the Jinju Railway Station, leaving behind intriguing remnants of its past. Our project embraces the site’s heritage, establishing a profound connection with its history. Drawing inspiration from the former railway tracks, the museum’s design embodies linearity. This concept is beautifully reflected in the interplay between the building’s linear lines and the seamless integration of the surrounding landscape, blurring the boundaries between exterior and interior spaces.
